VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Update: According to ISP Sgt. Matt Ames, as of 2:40 p.m. all westbound lanes have been reopened.

Original: Just minutes after a rollover semi crash was cleaned up near mile marker 7 westbound on Interstate 70 in Terre Haute, Indiana State Police have shutdown both westbound lanes at mile marker 12 due to a semi tractor that caught fire.

According to ISP Sgt. Matt Ames, the driver of a semi-truck failed to recognize that traffic had slowed due to the other crash at mile marker 7 and ran into the rear end of another vehicle. The truck then went off the north side of the roadway and caught fire.

“If you see a trooper sitting alongside the interstate in the state of Indiana, and they have all their emergency lights on, that means you need to start slowing down, and make sure that you are paying attention to whats in front of you,” Ames said.

There were no injuries and everyone was able to get out of the vehicle safely.

Riley and Honey Creek fire departments as well as crews from INDOT responded to the scene.

Sgt. Ames said this will cause a long delay for traffic on I-70.

Ames said as crews were finishing up at the scene of the mm7 crash, troopers had been attempting to slow traffic using a tactic known as “slow rolling”. Ames explained the process so drivers can understand what they are seeing when it happens.

“If there are “slow rolls” going on, then that means there is going to be a trooper in front of you, and they are going to decelerate your speed as you come up to an accident scene and they are going to show you what lane you need to go in,” Ames said. “We need you to merge at that point and be able to get through the accident scene as quickly and safely as possible.”
